At the end of September, I wrote a post about buying a Lane Cedar trunk from a yard sale – see here. It found a new home at the end of our bed (which has been moved upstairs to the guest bedroom because we got a new mattress!!), but it needed some sprucing up. Hello makeover time!

Holy hiatus – my life is no longer my own.
Nick and I decided after much thought and debate over our schedules that we were ready for a fur-child. So, the week before Thanksgiving (great timing right?) we got to bring home our little man! I feel like a new mom; sleep deprived and wide eyed. A good day is now defined by my ability to dress myself in matching socks and remembering to apply deodorant.
Please prepare yourself for the excited photobomb…Knox!

It’s beginning to feel a lot like…Thanksgiving? I realize it is a tad bit early, but I officially have my first Christmas decoration up. I just couldn't help myself! It’s fun to have a new house to decorate and besides I just love this time of year.
Our last house didn't have stairs, so this past weekend I went on a hunt for garland to go on the banister. And there was much success – thank you Homegoods. Immediately when I got home mom and I got to work putting it up and it definitely makes it feel like the holidays are here. (Christmas music may have been played. I wish I was kidding.)

Happy Monday, everyone!! This weekend was a very successful “getting things done” weekend. My mom and dad came up and helped us start to build the bookcases on either side of the fireplace. I was hoping to get them both done because I am so ready for that space to be complete (finishing a room would feel so good), but unfortunately it just didn't happen. However, the boys were able to get the one built that hides all those stupid wires – I mean honestly how many wires does it take for a TV to work; apparently a lot.

Well, it’s almost November. (What?!) Not sure how October has just gotten away from us, but it has. House projects are still getting done….blog posts, not so much. The big thing I have been focusing on lately is our stairs, but I don’t want to give you a sneak peek; you are just going to have to wait for the finished product!
BUT here is a small update on the whole fireplace/TV/bookshelf project we are still working on. I don’t know if you remember way back in June I did a fireplace facelift post where I briefly talked about future plans I had for that area at the end of the post. Well we finally got around to mounting the TV and hiding the wires in the mantle.

It’s been a hot minute since we've posted anything – oops! October has been a busy month for us with celebrating anniversaries, life, work, etc. Lots of big projects going on – which I hope to post soon, it’s all those little finishing touches that hold things up [UGH]!
Long story short I have a thing with pigs, which may or may not have something to do with the fact that I looked like the spawn of the Michelin Man when I was born. You know; fat baby problems. Anyways, my mom gave me pig corn spears when we moved into our home, super cute! Too bad we didn't use them until July and when we did, one of the spears came out. I wasn't really keen on that ending up in someone’s hand or mouth…why not re-purpose them? DONE!

Kevin and I just celebrated our 2nd anniversary (and I really can’t believe it.) Where the time goes I just don’t know, but I am FOREVER grateful to be blessed with such a wonderful husband who loves and supports me unconditionally – I know, I know so mushy!!
